A Letter to My Baby Girl on Her Four Month Birthday

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

Dear Little Sister,

This is my first blog letter to you, although I mentally write a letter to you every single day. Today, you turned four months old, and I continue to grow more amazed by you every day.

Four Month Old GirlFrom the moment my labor began, I knew you were someone very special. You were the ultimate partner and champion in your epidural-free, VBAC birth. Arriving two weeks late, I put my trust in you that you knew the best way to enter this world, and I’m so glad I did. I’ve trusted you every step of the way since then to care for you. I follow your lead, and know that your wise eyes hold more weight than any other parenting resource.

From the moment you were born, you seemed much older than a newborn. I think you may be an old soul like your mama. You have made life so easy for me. Instead of the harried, frantic life stage that I expected to be in with a toddler and newborn, I have spent the past four months in total bliss. I have felt nothing other than rested, calm, and totally in love. As I watch you and your loving brother interact, I have such an overwhelming feeling that our family is now complete.

4 months oldYou’ve brought an additional layer of beauty, sweetness, and joy to our lives that I could never have anticipated. Dada, Big Brother, and I all adore you so much, and I cherish every moment we spend all together.

Waking every morning to your little hands tugging on my shirt and opening my eyes to your joyous smile. Our faces nose to nose as we watch each other’s eyes with contentment. The feel of your breath going in and out against me as you rest upon me in the Ergo, your head upon my heart. Your squeals of excitement as you greet life every day with simple happiness. Your peaceful, beautiful face – the last thing I see when I close my eyes at night.

mom and babyThank you for making me proud and happy and so fulfilled every single day!

I love you,
Mama

How beautiful! Writing letters to my son is something that’s been really important to me as well. How lovely it’ll be for them to look back and read, huh?

What a wonderful remembrance she will have when she is older. I started a small journal when each of my children were born. I wrote in it every week detailing all their new “firsts” andother memorable moments during the week. Unfortunately,when they were 10 & 12 we movd, I got sick and those journals were somehow lost in the confusion. I never started it up again and now I can kick myself.
